Ughsmash (7323) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2007
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL as "Chicago Blonde". Poured a clear, very bright golden with a short white head... dusting and a ring. Aroma was light and bready with an aire of lemon.. solid for the style. Flavor had an almost tangy bready base with hints of lemon and some herbal bitterness.. light and pleasant. Light-bodied.. a bit dry on the back half and quite refreshing.

2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 4-2-5-2-9=22
Blond color, hazy. Too light aroma. Dry mouthfeel, it has a crispy flavor of corn and moderate bitterness. Dry finish.
Easy.

2006-12-17, draught at Humperdinkís, Dallas, as Texas Blonde, 2-2-2-2-4=12
Blond color. No aroma, no taste, just less close to water than the Light, but useless as well.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Nothing to write home about here. Crisp with a malt and wheat nose. A bit of lemon zest to simulate complexity on the palate. Better than a macro.

hopdog (9588) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2006
On tap at the Broomfield, CO location as the Colorado Blonde. Poured a light yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grain with a light honey sweet finish. Thin.

(Tap) Pours yellow with white head. Tastes similar to a macro. Light body and metallic flavor. Sweet aftertaste. Not impressive at all.

IrishBoy (3926) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Draft at CB Potts, Cheyenne; gold with a small white head; nose was grainy; flavor had a tiny bit of malt and hops.

OldMrCrow (2113) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Draft at the Ram in Seattle.

At 2.4 (score, not ABV, though it tastes a bit like the latter as well) this is actually one of the better offerings that they had at the Ram, though thi s obviously isnít saying much. It pours very light yellow, and totally transparent; the aroma is genetle, and slightly buttery though actually pleasant enough with a nice soft hint of sour grass. The flavor is mildly sweet, a bit grainy, a whisper of pineapple. This one is inoffensive, at least.

BuckeyeBoy (3246) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 22, 2006
On tap at the Ram Brewing Boise, ID. Pours out a light yellow topped with a white head. Has a little malt to it but not much else.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 5/20
bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Draft at Ram in Seattle. Pours a clear pale straw color, surmounted by a ring of foam. Aroma is very slightly malty and flowery. Light body, watery texture, medium carbonation. The taste is nearly non-existent, with a barely discernable crisp finish. If you canít decide between beer and water, now you donít have to.
